DEMOTIME: THE THIRD FLOOR Presents Key Takeaways Across Multiple Seasons of Game of Thrones Chris Edwards, CEO and Founder
Join Chris Edwards, CEO of THE THIRD FLOOR, and other special guests, for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at over six years of Emmy Award-winning work on Game of Thrones. The challenge of staging feature film-quality scenes for television inspired the development of streamlined production workflows and intuitive virtual techniques – using tools that have evolved from over a decade of THE THIRD FLOOR’s contributions to ambitious virtual productions such as Avatar, Gravity, Beauty and the Beast, and Thor: Ragnarok.

Come see how these practical innovations are helping directors and producers bring their grand visions to life cost effectively, and in a highly collaborative environment. Since audiences are not necessarily aware of time and budget considerations frommedium to medium, it’s critical for OTT networks and creators to leverage new technologies that boost efficiency and deliver maximum production value to their viewers.
